This interdisciplinary MSc programme will provide you with the skills, knowledge and expertise to become a practitioner in nanoscience, whether in industry or academia. The programme provides innovative and novel training, and will support you in the next phase of your career. To date, all of our graduates have been successful in obtaining either a PhD place or full-time employment. Just over fifty per cent have taken up PhD places in Bristol, other leading UK universities or in top universities around the world.

The Bristol Centre for Functional Nanomaterials (BCFN) represents more than 100 academics from 15 departments in the faculties of science, engineering and biomedical sciences. This rich and diverse support network ensures your training and research is at the cutting edge and is truly interdisciplinary.

The structure of the programme, with two short training projects and one research project means that you will have direct contact with many different academics and areas of research. You will choose your extended research project after having explored BCFN's network of research.

The programme has been designed to provide feedback on both technical and professional skills, including research skills, presenting, writing, teamwork, creativity and entrepreneurship.

Programme structure

Autumn and spring terms
-Communication and Management Skills (includes training on time management, decision making, project management, group working).
-Lecture courses on nanoscience and functional nanomaterials (graduate level training on key concepts and topics in nanoscience).
-Training in Advanced Tools for Nanoscience (through bespoke online modules, lectures and a special programme of hands-on practical training).
-Two training projects (one per term in months 1-3 and months 4-6).

Summer term
-Extended Research Project (months 6-12)
You can choose your training and research projects from a large number of project proposals, across the whole spectrum of Bristol Centre for Functional Nanomaterials research.

Careers

The combination of skills training and world-class nanoscience means that graduates of this programme have either started a PhD or successfully obtained full-time employment.

Nanomaterials Science Judged Best in the Field

The Dutch Master's Selection Guide (Keuzegids Masters 2016) ranked Utrecht University's Nanomaterials Science programme as the best in the field of Chemistry in the Netherlands.
Students chose the Master's programme Nanomaterials Science at Utrecht University as the best programme in the field in the yearly review 'Beste studies' by Elsevier.

Functional materials, organic and inorganic, play an important role in much of modern physics, chemistry and technology.

In this field there is an obvious trend towards systems which operate on the nanoscale. This includes the exciting areas of nanoscience, nanotechnology and catalysis: the fundamental units such as macromolecules, quantum structures and catalysts have dimensions on the nanometre scale. The challenges in this area of science include:
* the synthesis of functional units and their manipulation to form novel and 'artificial' solids;
* the study of fundamental processes in (nano)structured systems and the development of theory and models to explain new phenomena;
* the elucidation of structure-property relations;
* materials engineering and the application of materials in improved and novel devices.
* the elucidation of structure-property relations;
* materials engineering and the application of materials in improved and novel devices.

About the course

The course is designed to equip students with the know-how and skills for becoming an expert in materials science with nanotechnology specialisation.

You will experience the unique combination of a foundation semester in the general area of science and engineering of materials, followed by a nanoscience and nanotechnology specific semester to result in an unrivalled comprehensive nanomaterials expertise.

The course content reflects the highly interdisciplinary nature of this subject and allows students to specialise via options, 
and a major project.

A welcoming department

A friendly, forward-thinking community, our students and staff are on hand to welcome you to the department and ensure you settle into student life.

Your project supervisor will support you throughout your course. Plus you’ll have access to our extensive network of alumni, offering industry insight and valuable career advice to support your own career pathway.

Your career

Prospective employers recognise the value of our courses, and know that our students can apply their knowledge to industry. Our graduates work for organisations including Airbus, Rolls-Royce, the National Nuclear Laboratory and Saint-Gobain. Roles include materials development engineer, reactor engineer and research manager. They also work in academia in the UK and abroad.

90 per cent of our graduates are employed or in further study 6 months after graduating, with an average starting salary of £27,000, the highest being £50,000.

Equipment and facilities

We have invested in extensive, world-class equipment and facilities to provide a stimulating learning environment. Our laboratories are equipped to a high standard, with specialist facilities for each area of research.

Materials processing

Tools and production facilities for materials processing, fabrication and testing, including wet chemical processing for ceramics and polymers, rapid solidification and water atomisation for nanoscale metallic materials, and extensive facilities for deposition of functional and structural coatings.

Radioactive nuclear waste and disposal

Our £3million advanced nuclear materials research facility provides a high-quality environment for research on radioactive waste and disposal. Our unique thermomechanical compression and arbitrary strain path equipment is used for simulation of hot deformation.

Characterisation

You’ll have access to newly refurbished array of microscopy and analysis equipment, x-ray facilities, and surface analysis techniques covering state-of-the-art XPS and SIMS. There are also laboratories for cell and tissue culture, and facilities for measuring electrical, magnetic and mechanical properties.

The Kroto Research Institute and the Nanoscience and Technology Centre enhance our capabilities in materials fabrication and characterisation, and we have a computer cluster for modelling from the atomistic through nano and mesoscopic to the macroscopic.

Stimulating learning environment

An interdisciplinary research-led department; our network of world leading academics at the cutting edge of their research inform our courses providing a stimulating, dynamic environment in which to study.

Teaching and assessment

Working alongside students and staff from across the globe, you’ll tackle real-world projects, and attend lectures, seminars and laboratory classes delivered by academic and industry experts.

You’ll be assessed by formal examinations, coursework assignments and a dissertation.

Core modules

Bionanomaterials; Nanoscale Magnetic Materials and Devices; Nanostructures and Nanostructuring; Nanomaterials; Science of Materials; Materials Processing and Characterisation; Materials Selection, Properties and Applications; Technical Skills Development

Examples of optional modules
